four, this guy right here. that guy. there's paul ryan. number three, fact checkers. i don't get this one either. number two, the republican party for nominating him. ouch! oh! >> that's good stuff. >> coming up next your business. y with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes
akin's biology teacher. number four, this guy right here. that guy. there's paul ryan. number three, fact checkers. i don't get this one either. number two, the republican party for nominating him. ouch! oh! >> that's good stuff. up next, the fiscal cliff. will the interest groups give president obama room to make a deal? we'll talk with two of them who met with the president today. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. bp has paid overthe people of bp twenty-threeitment to the gulf. billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting th
is for this century and a line resources that way. >> you played paul ryan during the vice-presidential debate. you perhaps know the budget plan almost as well as paul ryan. what can you say about the plan knowing you were critical of it, you have opposed it. what could the basis between the middle ground? is there anything you see as a seed for compromise? anything you could negotiate with republicans? >> there is very little overlap between the democrat and republicans. we believe there are savings to be made in terms of rolling back the excess of agricultural subsidies. that is a part of his budget and a part of ours. we should be able to agree on those issues fairly quickly. the term common ground is used a lot. what we need is -- it would be great to find common ground. compromise means you have to accept some things you do not like an exchange for a moving forward and accomplishing a national objective. compromise has been in short supply until many parts of capitol hill. hopefully this will allow us to move forward. it needs to move forward in the context as change indicated of an understand
? would you turn down the kind of budget slashes that paul ryan wants to make? are you just budging on the tax side? >> well, no. here's the deal. the number that i would throw back to you is in the survey that we included, 35% of republicans said they would forgive their member of congress, republican member of congress if they voted to increase tax rates as long as the increase revenue went to solve the problem, not to go to more spending. and i think that that's the key. but i agree with scott. the president's sort of made fun of mitt romney's five-point plan. but i tell you what, if the democrats are willing to give on tax simplification which has increases for some people, not in the marginal rates, but some people will pay more taxes, and they then bring a serious proposal to the table on entitlement reform, there's a deal that can be had. i think they indicated they're willing to give that a shot. >> very good, gentlemen. thank you very much for joining us both of you. thank you for your work on behalf of the american people. well, even if we avoid flying off the fiscal cliff
the president down for breaking the pledge and some others. you have paul ryan who is an devotee. that is a novel, not something to build the republican platform on. i think that will be the biggest problem. republicans do not want to lose their jobs. host: nancy pelosi announcing she will return as the house minority leader, one of the ones at the white house just today that you probably saw. also talking with reporters after the meeting. here she talks about her focus that she had going into the meeting. [video clip] >> the speaker spoke about a framework going into next year. i was focusing on how to send a message of confidence to consumers in the markets in the short term to. we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction we should have. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should scare some milestones of success so confidence can build as we reach our solutions. if we do not reach an agreement, not only will we miss an opportunity to lift the spirits and confidence in our country, we will have an economic downturn that must be avoided. we understand
's former running mate paul ryan placed the blame on democrats in urban areas. >> the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> never mind the fact that he and mitt romney can also count largely rural states among those they lost. because we all know who ryan was really talking about when he mentioned those urban areas. mitt romney clarified that on his conference call the very next day. now, of course, romney was only resurrecting an old narrative he introduced on that other recording. the story of the makers and the takers where he is the champion of the hard working majority and the rest, the 47% are looking to president obama to give them an unearned handout. you see, that's something about bedtime stories and fairy tales. they're full of lovely lies, lies we tell ourselves to try and understand the harsh reality. for mitt romney and republicans that reality is this, it's not them. it's you. instead of asking themselves yls obama won such a diverse group of voters, republi
